INTRODUCTION to the KEYBOARD
The keyboard is made up of white keys with repeating patterns of black keys in groups of two and three.We use seven letters of the alphabet to make music; A,B,C,D,E,F, and G. After G, westart over again with A.Look at the group of two black keys. C will always be to the left of the two black keys. Ewill always be to the right of the two black keys. And D is right in the middle of the twoblack keys.Now look at the group of three black keys. F will always be to the left of the three black keys. B will always be to the right of the three black keys.Each key on the keyboard has a particular tone or pitch, and a certain place on the musicstaff. You will learn how each tone relates to a line or space, and you will be able to findit on the keyboard and combine the notes to make beautiful music.
STEPPING UP
If you do not have a musical keyboard near your computer, make a copy of the mock keyboard as directed on the first page of these lessons. It will be helpful to you inlearning the keyboard.When the notes on the staff go from a line to a space or from a space to a line, we step upor down to the next note letter.In the first measure we begin with the thumb of the right hand on the red-dotted middle C(line). Step up to D (space), then to E (line).In the second measure, the third finger is on E (line). Step down to D (space), then back down to C (line).This song is written in 4/4 time which means that we count 1,2,3,4 and the black notewith a stem (quarter note) gets one count. The white note with a stem (half note) gets 2counts.
 
3This song begins with the thumb of the left hand on middle C. In the first measure westep down from middle C (line) to B (space) to A (line). In the second measure, the thirdfinger is on A (line). Step up to B (space), then back up to C (line).Count 1,2,3,4 as you did in the previous song.
